Since graduating at the top of her class in law school, Danielle Petersen has distinguished herself as a gifted family lawyer. Danielle has experience working on complicated divorce issues, such as domestic violence issues, child custody disputes, property division issues, and child and spousal support claims.

While Danielle Petersen has achieved strong results in contested hearings in court, she also understands the value of settling issues outside of court. Settlement can save parties money and time, in addition to affording parties the opportunity to craft much more detailed and comprehensive agreements than what would have been achievable through contested court proceedings.

Danielle Petersen regularly attends continuing legal education courses on family law-related topics, and she is developing a reputation for being a strong and ethical advocate for our clients.

Clients frequently comment on Danielle’s hard-working and compassionate approach to practice, which helps cases progress in a cost-effective and efficient manner. When not at work, Danielle enjoys cooking, making home décor, and spending time with her energetic dog, Jax.
